LA has always featured a “murder tour” where the sightseers get driven around to sites of historic murders. The Manson family murders, The Black Dahlia, The Wonderland murders etc.

So the idea is that at the end of the tour, they’re all served dinner at a restaurant the creates famous last meals.

The John Wayne Gacy: 12 fried shrimp, a bucket of original recipe KFC, french fries, and a pound of strawberries.

The Gary Gilmore: Steak, potatoes, milk and coffee.

Trying to eat healthy? Try the Karla Faye Tucker: Garden Salad with Ranch Dressing, Banana, and a Peach

For dessert how about the Timothy McVeigh? Two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Lol. Boned before it was even finished.

Ada Street, a Chicago restaurant near North Avenue and the Kennedy Expressway, is basing its menu on the last meals requested by convicted killers before their executions: figures like John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, and Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. [a1, Feb 25 2023]

       [+] and the read-while-you-wait tabletop booklet, in additions to desserts and beverages ads, obviously includes historico-social reasons why those exact meals were originally chosen as the perpetrator's last.

       As long as Jeffrey Dahmer's meal requests are off the menu (along with all other meat products) this seems like quite a sensible idea.

       Maybe a whole dark motif restaurant should be a thing.

       My favorite Drew Carey Show episode has Ryan Stiles character trying to pick up a chick at the bar by impressing her with reciting every Last Meal given to death row inmates and then saying to the woman he's hitting on;   

       "So... where exactly do you live?"   

       Totally cracked me up.   

         

       Shit. I'm literally laughing out loud just remembering it.   

       Lol! Just the description’s cracking me up.
